The picture that traveling connotes is an image of glamour and adventure. Being able to tread unfamiliar paths, being able to experience breathing and living in an entirely different place with a new kind of culture is a dream come true to some. But prospective travelers should also face facts – not every journey is going to be a pleasure. Sitting in hard seats for long land travel hours, neck strain during plane rides, noisy surroundings, minor injuries, heavy luggage, airport queues are among some of the travel inconveniences you can come across. To be able to remedy those travel hassles here are some good travel aids suggestions which will help the nomadic adventurer.
First to eliminate the neck strain during plane rides, one can bring a neck pillow. Pillows are important travel aids which can help provide comfort during long rides and can provide additional comfort when sleeping in hotels and airports. Next important travel aid to bring is the noise reducing earphones. Hearing music through an MP3 player is sometimes a source of an annoyance rather than a source entertainment as music is garbled by the outside noise during transit or a local hawker eatery. The new technology filters outside sounds to provide a crisper and clearer music.
Although certain travel aids aim to provide customized comfort when traveling, other aids provide safety measures, like a luggage locator. A luggage locator works as a tracker which detects the luggage’s keychain where detection can span to up to 60 feet away. This works well especially in airports where luggage can sometimes be misplaced or lost.
A luggage weight scale is useful in ensuring your luggage is within airline weight restrictions and can save you a fortune in excess luggage charges these days. For your comfort, it is a good idea to have a folding luggage cart. This will save you from having to carry heavy luggage around particularly in places where trolleys are either not supplied or in such high demand from other travelers they are impossible to find. The great thing about a good lightweight folding luggage cart is that it can be taken virtually anyway, used as required and then can also be easily packed away when not needed.
Another ingenious travel aid is the portable inflatable clothes hangers. When deflated these clothes hanger shrinks to a very small size as opposed to wooden or metal hangers that can take so much space. Likewise travel aids are really helpful during emergency situations, like where the gadgets’ power drains and die. A wireless charger can charge such gadgets without the need for electricity!
Apart from gadget charge emergency, there are travel aids that help during medical emergencies. What traveling survival kit can be complete without the travel medical kit? Medical kits provide immediate first aid to cuts, bruises and other minor accidents. Also in the medical kit are medicines and remedies to common travel sicknesses such as diarrhea, allergies and motion sickness.
So remember, when you are preparing to travel, consider packing some of these travel aids because they can make your journeys safer, easier, more comfortable and therefore considerably more enjoyable.
